Welcome to Wilgus Hall
Wilgus Hall, named after James A. Wilgus and built in 1963, accommodates approximately 230 women. Wilgus is located on the corner of Greewood Avenue and College Drive. Wilgus Hall is specifically unique because is an all-women’s residence hall. This living option offers a terrific opportunity for women to build a close community within the hall. Each floor features a kitchenette and lounge area for the convenience of its residents. Wilgus hall has a newly renovated basement with study rooms, a computer room, laundry facility, ice machine, and offers The Lynn Collins Conference Room that features a TV and a kitchen in a large meeting and dining area. The conference area is well utilized throughout the year by many organizations on campus.
Wilgus Hall sponsors an annual Women’s Weekend and Holiday Party. This event is open not only to UW-Platteville students, but to community members as well. The Holiday Party is the highlight event of Wilgus Hall that residents and the community looks forward to every year.
From the Desk of the Resident Director
Happy new year!
Wilgus Hall will open for Spring Semester on January 15th at 10:00am. Residents are free to move in any time between that point and the start of classes on Tuesday, January 20th.
Spring Semester brings a lot of important activities such as room reservations for the 2015-2016 academic year or beginning the process of applying for on-campus jobs for next year. Keep your eyes peeled for information about all of these things as the semester progresses.
In terms of Wilgus activities we are hoping to kick off the semester early on with an Activities Fair hosted by the Wilgus Hall Council. If you are looking for clubs or organizations to get involved with, or are already involved and want to find other Wilgus residents to participate, this will be a fun activity. Additionally we will be planning for Women's Weekend, which happens later in the semester. This program spans a weekend and is a great chance for women across campus to bond, relax, and learn more about being a strong woman leader on this campus. We hope to see you there!
Hope you had a restful and fun winter break. We're excited to have you back (or joining us new) in Wilgus Hall.
